According to the manufacturing process and rigidity of CCL, CCL can be divided into rigid copper clad laminate and flexible copper clad laminate. Rigid copper-clad laminates can be briefly divided into paper base, fiberglass cloth base, composite base, special substrate, etc. according to the classification of reinforcing materials.
Rigid CCLs are not easy to bend and have a certain hardness and toughness. They are mainly used in communications equipment, household appliances, electronic toys, computer peripherals and other products. In rigid CCL, fiberglass cloth made of fiberglass cloth and electronic resin Substrate (FR-4) is currently the most widely used and widely used product in PCB manufacturing.
With the rapid development of the electronics manufacturing industry, the demand for rigid copper-clad laminates continues to increase. In recent years, the global output value of rigid copper-clad laminates has continued to expand. This article lists the top 15 rigid CCL manufacturers in the world.
